Looks like I'll be inline with what others feel here.

Very light clear yellow in colour. There is quite a long thin malty quality here with barely any carbonation. Hops seem really in short supply making it not much more than interesting. The only rather disappointing beer I've had from this brewery.

3.2/5  rDev -2.7%

Served in a half-pint glass.

A: Golden yellow with the highest clarity. Very pale.

S: Muted citrus and cream.

T: Sweet, malty, with a dryish aftertaste. Hops are barely present only on the finish.

M: Round, washy, and pretty unremarkable. Fairly substantial.

D: Very drinkable, but not great. If this is the norm, the English IPA is shockingly different from the American variety...this beer had almost no hop character.

3.65/5  rDev +10.9%

Pint served from 5 litre pressurised mini-keg into shaker pint glass.

A- Deep golden body with an amber note. 3 finger rocky head that reduces quickly but leaves a nice crown and gives good lacing.

S- Faint floral hop notes, but malty biscuityness is more obvious

T- Malts dominate the tongue with a caramel sweetness. Floral hops are there in the finish which gives a clean texture.

M- Low to medium carbonation, medium body.

D- A tasty very sessionable IPA. However, the malt flavours are too strong for the style, which gives the beer too much of a sweetness to be really refreshing. However, there is a nice hop bitterness in the finish which holds up and gives it a cleaness. Not bad!

Okay IPA from Stewart. A little light in the colour, too golden. Thin, white head.

Sweet malt scent, and a nice zesty hop scent. Not stellar, but certainly identifiable as an IPA. Could perhaps stand for a little more definition in the malts and a little more oomhp in the hops.

Similar taste: mild malts and hops. Fairly standard; tasty but it doesn't really jump out at me. Easy to drink, and at 4.1% (a little low), this is easily sessionable.

2.1/5  rDev -36.2%

Had this on tap at some pub outside of Edinburgh after about a 9 mile hike in the Pentland Hills. From some notes...

Appearace: Pours a deep amber-orange color with absolutely no head at all, even on tap. The color is nice, but the absence of a head is a bit concerning.

Smell: The smell is almost non-existent. However, I could pick out some very faint hints of sweet malts and even a touch of hops.

Taste: Tasted very watery to me, with only very few hints that there were malts and hops in this beer. Not unpleasant, but certainly not good.

Mouthfeel: Very thin and watery. Could have perhaps been a little flat, although I drank this an alleged four miles from the brewery, so shame on this pub if they let it lose its carbonation.

Drinkability: Well, drinking this beer was kind of akin to drinking beer-flavored water, so it wasn't horrible to drink, but I think one in a lifetime will suffice for me.

Overall, very weak beer but not repulsive.

3.45/5  rDev +4.9%

Sampled at the Guildford Arms, Edinburgh

Pours a golden yellow with a foamy white head which leaves a solid layer of foam all the way down the glass. Minimal nose with some faint hops and malt. Sweet malts with a grassy hoppy finish. Fairly short, doesn't develop much, but it's pleasant enough. Very nice smooth and creamy mouthfeel. A drinkable ale but not the most stunning IPA I've tried. A sort of run-of-the-mill offering. It is drinkable nonetheless.
